Limerick students aim for careers as safe as houses

Transition year students from Crescent College Comprehensive who took part in the Safe Pass training course.

WHETHER their future holds a career in engineering, block laying or carpentry, the transition year students from Crescent College Comprehensive have put themselves ahead of the posse in terms of future employment options.

The students successfully completed their Safe Pass training with the Construction Industry Federation and SOLAS before Christmas.

Safe Pass is the national mandatory safety training for the construction industry and students from the college undertook the training as part of their transition year cycle.

Dermot Carey, Director, Safety and Training at CIF congratulated the students and said the school must be commended for giving their students every opportunity to develop their skills and their career options.

Students from Limerick and across Ireland are undertaking Safe Pass training with Construction Industry Federation as part of Transition Year, Leaving Cert and Leaving Cert Applied courses in schools this year.

The initiative is part of the CIF’s Careers Campaign to support students interested in a career in the construction industry.

“Across Ireland from civil engineers, architects, site managers to work experience labourers, Safe Pass is what we all have in common and it is the gateway to some great career options for the future. I hope the students enjoyed the training and learned a lot,” Mr Carey added.
